6 PoE Exalted Orb Farming Tips, Price, Drop Rate, Recipe – Buy Exalted Orbs Path of Exile

Exalted Orb Exalted Orb enchants a rare item with a new random modifier. It is a high-value currency that plays a crucial role in the in-game economy. Their primary purpose is to craft high-end rare items. Because of this, it is regarded as the “gold standard” currency for trading between players, with many trade deals listed in terms of Exalted Orbs. Since the average player does not have the means to craft high-end items, the average player typically trades Exalted Orbs for other valuable equipment instead of consuming them.

For powerful or wealthy players looking to use Exalted Orbs on powerful rare items, there are two primary methods to consume them. The first is through direct use of the orb, adding a random affix to a rare item that does not already have six affixes. The other is to add high-end affixes through mastercrafting by paying a fixed amount of Exalted Orbs. The latter method grants crafters access to the special meta-crafting mods which cannot be rolled naturally.
